This is truely WONDERFUL news!

It will undoubtably completely change our conception of 'mid-period' Burroughs.

I look forward to this with greater excitement than anything else that has come out since Burrough's death. It will be interesting to see what everyone here feels about it.

“But knowing and working with Bill Burroughs was above all characterized by its humor… He was simply the funniest guy I’d ever met.”

Malcolm Mc Neill

very much looking forward to this book.

This is the most exciting news I've heard in a long time. The text is one of my favourite Burroughs pieces.

What's funny is that I read about this project, but the reviews came off as being dismissive. Unless I'm confusing the negative reviews with some other Burroughs work. I read the article and was blown away by the artwork. This is a must buy for me.

"Young mutant heroes using the same Mayan formulae travel through time bringing biologic plagues from the remote past to destroy Hart and his Judeo/Christian temporal reality."

- from a short article on this new book from the Guardian:

Not yet. I think it'll be out in 2011. (Then again, it is difficult to predict publisher's deadlines, which often change.)

It's worth noting that the book is no longer "Ah Pook as it was supposed to be." It will contain Mc Neill's images but no Burroughs text. Both the art book and the memoir will be great to have, though. I've read a draft of the memoir and it offers a really fine portrait of Burroughs.

I have a copy of RUSH magazine coming. Published in 1976, it features 11 pages of the collaboration. I'll scan it when it arrives. That will tide us over until publication.
